‘This Is Why Dell Technologies Exists’
Michael Dell has bullish future plans for Dell Technologies, including becoming the kingpin of unlocking the power of data, simplifying technology, and transitioning Dell’s global workforce to be comprised of 50 percent women by 2030.
“This is why Dell Technologies exists—to unlock the power of data to solve our greatest challenges,” said Dell on stage during his keynote at the Dell Technologies Summit in Texas Tuesday.
Dell said across the $91 billion tech giant, Dell Technologies is creating the future of infrastructure from the cloud to the edge in order to make life simpler. “Innovating a simple open platform that’s going to secure and move siloed data to drive learning, insights and action when and where it’s needed, I believe, is the most important work we can be doing,” he said.
Dell also didn’t shy away from taking a jab at public cloud providers during his keynote.
“Our 600,000 vSphere customers have 70 million virtualized workloads—by the way, this is bigger than all the public clouds combined—and by integrating Kubernetes into vSphere, customers can operate their developer environment with the same management and automation tools that they know and love,” he said.
Here are the Dell’s five boldest statements from his keynote at Dell Technologies Summit.
